Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: What type of person is a Deadhead? (or What is a Deadhead?)

You know I just want to make a comment about the whole Touchhead, Deadhead thing. (I always hated that term Touchhead!) I started listening to the dead, tapes first, back in December '86, right before the whole Touch of Grey explosion. My first show wasn't til the summer of '87, so by definition, I guess I'm a Touchhead (though I LOVE early Dead!) There were tons of us, and the numbers grew each year.

But the point I want to make, is that when you're STILL listening to the dead, (almost 20 years now), trading tapes (ok, now they're CD's) and on forums everyday, you STOP being a touchhead. Because a true touchhead was into the 'scene' and 'party', and not really into the music. You're a deadhead. period.
